Sejenis pokok ini banyak dapat dilihat di bandar K Terengganu pada masa yang silang, dan terkenal dikalangan orang orang dahulu dengan nama 'buna pecah kauala' - flower of opening of river estuary. The trees were in full bloom at he time of the year when the river mouth o Terengganu bgan to widen up after Monsoon. It is a shame these trees are not seen around here nowadays and to older generation - me included of course! - it is a memory of a beautiful plant with a strangely beautiful name to signify a natural event of the year.

Of course travelling along the forests in Sabah I used to see these beautiful plants, their presence signified by their beautiful red tops rising above other tree tops.

Aunty Puteri,
That's the advantage of travelling far and wide...we get to encounter such beauty once in a while. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

BoBo dear,
Auw! Am blushing here. Gifts? We'll check with Mama later. purrrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Dear Pakcik,
Is it this tree or perhaps you're talking about the African tulip? It's a big tree with orange tulip-like flowers. A magnificent tree. Mama said there used to be one at her old school, if they haven't cut it down. purrrr *giggles*

What a pretty tree!

Ezza said...

semasa kecil hingga remaja, saya tinggal ti kuartes majikan abah yang di miliki oleh rakyat British...Kuartes nya di tanah yang luas dan banyak padang yang hijau...sejuk mata memandang!..dan banyak pokok FoF ni...
bayang kan lah bila time pokok ni mengeluar kan bunga merah nya..rasa macam dalam paradise saje..hijau padang dan merah pokok...aduihh..cantik..
rasa nya orang british sengaja tanam pokok ni untuk mengingat kan mereka pada kampung halaman mereka kot...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Island Cats,
Show us the beautiful trees on your island. Am sure you have some. purrrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Ezza,
Tak tahulah dah berapa lama pokok ni di situ. Kawasan ni pun bekas estet. purrrrr *giggles*

Lili said...

Cantik kan! Kat sini pun tengah 'mabuk' bunga pokok semarak api ni... yang kuning pun ada.

Tak jauh dari tempat awak. Esok kita habaq no.... purrrrrr *giggles*

Tante Sandy,
Given the chance, I'd climb that tree right up to the top. Then Mama will have to call the Fire Brigade to bring me down. purrrr *giggles*
